This top 3 poll has never been made on this board, so I decided to do it.
So let's look what would be top 3 most beloved Rush albums here. I suppose: Hemispheres, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures.

And do you rate all 3 albums 10/10?

1. AFTK
2. PeW
2.5. MP
2.75. Signals
3. 2112

Probably just 1 and 2 are 10/10s, but obviously 2.5, 2.75, and 3 are very close.

1, AFTK
2. Hemi
3. PW

If you're going to vote for any of the first 4 albums, you might as well vote for AFTK ATWAS. It's basically a 'best tracks live' album from the first 4 without all the filler (yeah, yeah, stop whining about no necromancer).

Sorry wrong acronym.

I truly believe Rush hit the sweet spot on Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures and Signals.  I chose those three because they seem like the most complete albums in terms of a theme and musicianship.  I know it's common.  The only 10/10 was Moving Pictures.  I consider it their masterpiece.

1. Hold Your Fire
2. Roll The Bones
3. Grace Under Pressure

Other times, A Farewell To Kings or Moving Pictures take the number two and three spots. Roll The Bones is such a vibrant, warm and emotional album, I can't quite believe at times it is the same band that wrote 2112, but its a Rush album I now live deeply and adore almost in its entirety. It's odd that I can't call these three albums flawless like I can a small handful of other Rush albums, but these three right now mean the most to me. Presto and Vapor Trails (original) are close as well.
